Anger is an extremely misunderstood emotion and how we respond to anger often garners a lot of shame and guilt. I approach anger with an empathetic lens because I believe it is an indicator that we need something, and once we understand what anger is trying to tell us we can better prevent outbursts that we're not proud of.
There are multiple concerns that span the LGBTQIA community and I find most of it comes down to the way the world responds to them rather than the person themselves. I strive to create an affirming environment for my clients to express themselves authentically so whether they're exploring themselves, questioning societal constructions, or already affirmed in themselves and just processing the trauma of an invalidating environment I'm here to hold space for them.
My biggest thing with clients is building up their inner voice and empowering them to be their authentic self. While people seek therapy for a myriad of different concerns I believe that in many circumstances they already have the tools they need to address some of their emotional distress. It's just about providing space for them to recognize it themselves.
